For the first time ever, the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) has anointed an Outstanding Runner Friendly Community — and it's the Monterey Peninsula! The announcement was exciting news in the midst of the warm-up to the Big Sur International Marathon, held this year on May 1. To celebrate the occasion, we asked our fans for their favorite runs on the Monterey Peninsula and hunted high and low on the Internet to see what others had to say. Then we compiled this list of Five Fantastic Monterey Peninsula Runs. Though these five runs are amazing, we're sure that the Monterey Peninsula and Monterey County have many more fine runs to offer! What fantastic running routes are we missing? What one run do you feel is the can't-miss in all of Monterey County? Tell us in the comments!
